Saving Faith (Day 6)


The essence of sin must be understood in order to properly deal with it!

Listen to today’s Truth…

Unless cut off, sin grows.

Read the following Scripture…

James 1:15 says, “Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death.”  

Consider these thoughts…

First, it starts with the desires from within your heart. Then, it becomes an action committed after temptation. That action can then develop into a vice that poisons your life.
If you want to cut off an addiction or habit, you must begin with the desire of the heart. Behind every choice to sin is a desire that you believe that God cannot fulfill. The root if sin is unbelief.
Start with entrusting Him with what your heart really wants. Behind every deeply rooted sin is a need for safety, acceptance, peace, etc. Can you believe that the Lord will show Himself strong in those areas of need?

Apply the truth! The following are optional things to do…

  • Take some time to reflect on what the desires of your heart are.
  • Make some choices to cut off sin in your life.

Pray…

  • For self-awareness.
  • For the desire of your heart to be met by God.
